Is Heart Disease Preventable? 95% of the Time The Answer is "Yes"

One in four deaths in America is related to heart disease. Over 600,000 people die of heart disease every single year!

The cost for this annually is in the hundreds of billions of dollars. Yet, over 95 percent of the cases of heart disease are preventable! It’s a lifestyle related disease, especially when it comes to a heart attack.

Do You Want the First Symptom of Heart Disease To Be a Heart Attack?

Typically the first symptom of heart disease is a heart attack. And nearly 50 percent of the time that first symptom is the cause of death for that person.

People are so stuck judging their health by how they look or how they feel or getting a test from their doctor. They’re more worried about what their blood pressure is or cholesterol or some other numbers that have very little to do with their overall health.

Very few people, especially traditional doctors, is actually looking at the true cause of heart attack, which is subluxation.

What Causes a Heart Attack?

A heart attack is a sympathetic event in your nervous system. It’s like a short in the electrical system, causing your heart to go out.

Let me explain exactly how that works and how chiropractic can help change that.

When you’re under stress, when you have traumas from emotions, toxins, and physical traumas, that causes misalignments in your spin. This is a condition called subluxation, and it interferes with your nerves.

If you look right in here, this is your brain. Your brain sends messages down your spinal cord and out the nerves. Now, the spinal cord is connected to a few different areas. It’s most importantly connected to what’s called your sympathetic chain ganglion, which goes into all organs and affects the sympathetic nervous system.

When you’re in a stressful state, known as a sympathetic state, everything’s working overtime.

  • Your blood pressure goes up.
  • Your heart rate goes up.
  • Your heart has to work harder.
  • Your muscles have to work harder.
  • Your digestive system shuts down.
  • Your immune system shuts down.
  • The cognitive portion of your brain start shutting down.

Imagine if you’re in that state all the time and your blood pressure is high. No drug fixes that.

Your heart’s beating too fast. No drug fixes that.

Your heart is not repairing and regenerating like it should. No drug fixes that.

How Chiropractic Care Can Fix Your Heart Issues

The way we’re able to correct and change the sympathetic state is by removing that interference, creating what’s called a parasympathetic state where everything relaxes, calms down and heals.

There was a study done a few years back on chiropractic and blood pressure alone, where one adjustment was more effective in reducing blood pressure than the top two medications. That’s because it’s affecting this system.

So if you’re having heart problems, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, or you’ve had a heart attack or other issues, the first place you want to go to is your chiropractor.
